Smoked oak flooring will remain in the same colour as the original finish without need of re-staining

Before the works...

The oak engineered wood flooring in this Putney house was overall looking tired and in urgent need of restoration. During our initial survey, we did a thorough inspection of the floors and discussed with the client all possible options.

Our client has decided to go for floor sanding, of 30 sqm oak engineered wood flooring and finishing the floors in matt Lacquer.

How we completed the restoration works...

Engineered flooring planks come in 3 main standards of thickness, which also defines how thick is the available for sanding oak top layer of the product. Depending on the overall condition of the floors, the initial floor sanding may start with coarser or medium grid. The task of this stage is not only to remove the previous finish and get the floors to bare wood, but also to provide a good level throughout the entire floor. In the case of engineered wood flooring, the level of the floor is usually good, due the "click" or "tongue-and-groove" locking between the planks.

Sanding the floors with fine grids (80 - 120 gr) and a good rotary buff to the oak timber surface with high grid buffing screens is the most important stage in the preparation of the wooden flooring for finishing.

The engineered wood flooring was consequently sealed with 1 coat of primer and 2 coats of Bona Mega Lacquer in matt sheen with another light screen buff between the coats, for an excellent final touch to the finish.

Did you know this about oak flooring?

Oak is the king. It is hard, beautiful and resilient. While all other timbers may change colour and shape with time, oak does not (or very little) - it is eternal. Because its quite popular, oak planks and blocks, are available in various sizes when repairs to oak floors and parquet are needed.
